Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced the launch of the Absolute Scanner AS1 with an automation-capable data collection speed of 1.2 million points per second and interoperability between portable arm and laser tracker systems. The same scanner can be moved back and forth as needed between an arm used for interior quality control and a tracker setup performing flush and gap inspection. The scanner has a modular blue laser line. When used together with a Leica Absolute Tracker AT960, the AS1 can deliver scanning accuracy to within just 50µm from up to 30m away, handheld or automated. For smaller applications, the AS1 scanner unit can be easily mounted to any existing current-generation Absolute Arm 7-Axis system.
